: THE SOUND OF WORDS

by W. B. STANFORD
Regius Professor of Greek in the University of Dublin
There are qualities inherent in words which a poet or orator can exploit to please us or to annoy us or to influence us. Professor Stanford illustrates how the sound of words can be as important as their conceptual meaning, and can influence the unconscious minds of both those who chose the words and those who hear them.
With readings by DENYS HAWTHORNE and the voices, on record, of W. E. Gladstone , W. B. Yeats. James Joyce , and Dylan Thomas
Produced by Adrian Johnson

: MOZART'S 'COSI'

A critical reappraisal by DR. MICHAEL TANNER
Fellow of Corpus Christi College. Cambridge, and Lecturer in Moral Sciences
Dr. Tanner argues that there is very little criticism of opera which takes the art-form as seriously as it deserves. He illustrates this claim by considering ' the confusion into which Mozart's Cosi fan tutte has thrown its commentators,' and offers an alternative account, using excerpts from that work.
A performance of ' Cosl fan tutte ': tomorrow at 3.0 p.m. (Music Programme) followed by an interlude at 10.55

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
